Catherine Zeta-Jones Treated for Bipolar Disorder

There is shocking news that Oscar®-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is undergoing mental health treatment for bipolar disorder.

Her publicist tells INSIDE EDITION, "After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder."

Zeta-Jones has been by her husband, Michael Douglas's side in his battle with stage four throat cancer since last summer.

The pressure led to a memorable meltdown at JFK Airport in September, when she dissolved into tears in a mass of paparazzi.

And just last month, a furious Zeta-Jones flipped out at a photographer she accused of punching her in the chin as she and her husband were entering a London hotel.

Zeta-Jones was reportedly treated for bipolar disorder at the world-famous Silver Hill hospital in Connecticut.

The National Enquirer broke the story in its issue out today, reporting that Zeta-Jones checked into Silver Hill on April 6th under the alias "Terrie Kirny" and that Michael Douglas was with her when she was dropped off.

Zeta-Jones's publicist adds that she's now back at home and said, "She's feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films."
